PYRAMIDS

by Pratchett, Terry

Condition: Near Fine/Very Good


Roc, 1991. Book. Illus. by Anderson, Doug. Near Fine. Hardcover. Book Club (BCE/BOMC). Book Club Edition, first printing and first US hardcover edition. (Previously published in the UK by Gollancz in 1989.) The 7th Discworld novel. All first US hardcover editions were published as book club editions until HarperCollins took over publishing with Small Gods, the 12th novel. All first printing points present: printing code #18037 on rear panel and black boards with gold lettering on spine and the NAL imprint on spine; "Jacket art by Doug Andersen" printed on rear flap, cover is also shows the artist's signature. The page block shows some moderate scuffing on the bottom edge, else a straight, square copy. Jacket has a triangular closed tear (4cm x 2cm) at bottom edge of rear jacket near the spine. Some very light chipping at tips, else jacket is clean and intact and without the usual clipping. Unusual to find these older Pratchett book club in collectible condition as they are usually "loved" to pieces by fans of the series..

It's bad enough being new on the job, but Teppic hasn't a clue as to what a pharaoh is supposed to do. After all, he's been trained at Ankh-Morpork's famed assassins' school, across the sea from the Kingdom of the Sun.First, there's the monumental task of building a suitable resting place for Dad -- a pyramid to end all pyramids. Then there are the myriad administrative duties, such as dealing with mad priests, sacred crocodiles, and marching mummies. And to top it all off, the adolescent pharaoh discovers deceit, betrayal -- not to mention aheadstrong handmaiden -- at the heart of his realm.
